we like it!

Ci Gusta!” stands for “We Like It” in Italian. Indeed, we definitely liked the Dark Chocolate from Ci Gusta. It was smooth, rich, very thick and velvety. It wasn’t too sweet, with a tinge of bitterness. It was the strong, outstanding flavours of dark chocolate which won us over. In fact, when we had it together with the Donatella, it made the hazelnut taste of the later pale in comparison. The Pino Pinguino  was essentially vanilla ice cream, with dollops of milk chocolate within it. Naturally, the chunks of chocolate were the highlight of the Pino Pinguino. The Salted Caramel was more towards the sweet side, than the salty side. On the whole, the ice cream at Ci Gusta! was reasonably priced and commendable. In particular, the Dark Chocolate has got to be the crowd favourite.

likeable!

Looking at the tubs and tubs of tantalising colourful display of gelatos, sorbets and yoghurt at its shopfront, how can one not try it? The shop is bright and cheery, and one can choose up to 2 flavours even if it's the smallest cup (picolo).

Sampled flavours such as Pino Pinguino (bestseller - nicely fragrant hazelnut taste), Chocolate, Vanilla Whisky, Rum and Raisin, and Salted Caramel before deciding on Salted Caramel, Rum and Raisin and Peach Mango.

The rum tasted quite strong in the beginning but its flavour mellowed considerably as you bite along. Peach Mango is such a refreshing flavour that it feels almost like a you're sitting on the beach enjoying the breeze. But, my favourite is Salted Caramel. Decadent.

Italian Gelato which means “We Like It!”

More reviews at http://DanielFoodDiary.com

There are more than 15 flavours of artisanal gelato to choose from, and they all sound very exciting with vanilla whisky, salted caramel, pistachio with sea salt and forest berries. Price range from $3.90 for piccolo, $5.40 for medio, and $6.90 for grande.

Ice cream can be really personal, and after trying out close to 10 different types, I decide to stick to my pino pinguino with a blend of chocolate and hazelnut flavours.

If you are bored with the gelato texture, maybe you have not tried the gelato tenero – a dessert combining soft serve ice cream and premium gelato. That is like the best of both worlds – except that I wished it did not melt so fast in our climate.

Mi Gusta!

Ci Gusta!, which also means “We Like It!”  in Italian, is the latest addition to the slew of ice cream parlours here. If the moniker does not ring a bell, it is probably because this flagship outlet is the first in Asia yet, and 5th in the entire Universe. Thanks to the pair of sisters, Peggy and Claudia, who brought in the franchise, we now fancy 18 crowd-pleasing flavours freshly made everyday in their on-site kitchen; All ingredients are also air-flown from Italy. Good news: Gelato uses fresh milk instead of cream, so you calorie-counters could go ahead with your guilty pleasure.

It is totally understandable to stop and stare at this 3-week-old Italian delicatessen, especially when their brightly-lit interior  is so attention-seeking. Hygiene is prominently emphasized in this cafe, which accounts for the clean and sleek feel it gives off. Also, do expect friendly and affable service in this white and turquoise 20-odd seater.

We say throw away all inhibitions and dig in mindlessly as discipline would be an epic fail.

WE ORDERED:

1.Dark choc crunch/ Vanilla whisky/ Tiramisu, 5.4(medio):

The 85% Dark Chocolate Crunch was superbly intense and potent, so we were not surprised it was a hot-seller. The bitter-sweet concoction was heavenly and it left us yearning more of that endorphin rush. The Vanilla Whisky smacked us hard with the booze, and followed by a mild vanilla aftertaste behind the intoxication. So kids watch out! Do not be fooled by the alcoholic variant of vanilla. Last but not least, the Tiramisu  won us over with chunks of alcohol-imbued sponge embedded within, adding extra flavours and texture to the coffee-based ice-cream.

2. Waffles + Donatella + Crunchy brownie toppings, 8.9:

The Donatella + Crunchy brownie combination was pure sin made in heaven. Donatella is Ci Gusta!’s rendition of Nutella-flavoured ice cream and together with the diet-killing dried brownie bits swathed over it, we experienced a flavour overload. Do not be surprised if this harmony reminds you of Ferrero Rocher. The waffle, on the other hand, was crisp on the surface and soft at heart, plus the light fragrance of the batter left us begging for seconds.

Warning: Sharing is caring does not apply here.

We are now blessed with genuine and unpretentiously good Italian gelato besides the hotdogs from Ikea. Prices can be a little cheeky, but that is in exchange for the finest quality of desserts. Also, do check out their yogurt and soups as well. Leave the gymming till another day.

Ci gusta? Mi Gusta!
